Girls’ Night Out

Getting dressed up for a night on the town is always a great way to end the week! What is more fun than getting all dolled up for some quality time with your best gal pals? When I lived in Atlanta, getting dressed way easy. A night out meant silky dresses, sky high heels, and a set of falsies to finish the look. When I moved to D.C., I quickly learned that the Atlanta night out uniform looked pretty out of place, and was less than practical without curbside valet on every corner and chilly nights stretching into June. I still haven’t added flats to my night out ensemble, but swapped out silk dresses for silk tanks, skinny jeans, and more practical heels. This breezy tank layers well under a jacket for chilly evenings, but has a twist strap detail (similar to the straps on my wedding dress) for a little extra interest when worn alone. What are your favorite looks for a night out with the gals?

Springtime Sunday Afternoon

Even though the cherry blossoms have bloomed, the weather in the DC area is still waffling between the warm and sunny spring days we’ve all been looking forward to and those when there is still a bit of a chill in the air. For a simple, chic springtime ensemble for those chilly days, I like to pull on a pair of white jeans with a lightweight pastel hued sweater. I love this look since it’s bright and cheery enough for spring, but still warm enough to keep you comfortable to head out for a stroll sans jacket. We often enjoy stopping by Buzz Bakery or Slater’s Market for a little afternoon pick-me-up. Buzz has all sorts of flavored lattes and other goodies like maple bourbon glazed bacon donuts and gluten free vanilla bean scones while Slater’s Market is the closest stop for gelato. What’s your favorite way to enjoy a weekend afternoon?
